Other information
MUSICAL INFLUENCE
She was born into a family of musicians. Her grandmother was composer, while her parents studied music in London, England, and her mother played as part of the Spanish National Orchestra. She says this musical influence has helped her in her artistic swimming career. "[As a child I] danced all the time, because I got used to listening to all kinds of music. And that is important in artistic swimming because the movements have to be matched with the music." (as.com, 20 Jul 2019)
